At Dr. Genninger’s dental practice we know that many people are plagued with anxiety at the very thought of visiting the dentist. But we also know how important it is to maintain a healthy mouth, which is why we offer our patients sedation dentistry in Tampa, FL. This allows them to get the dental work they need without the pain and stress that are sometimes associated with a trip to the dentist. Often, sedation can help change a patients view of the dentist and dental care for the better once they realize how easy it truly is. Sedation dentistry can help with:
- Bad past experiences with the dentist
- Fear of upcoming procedures
- Sensitive gag reflexes
- Phobia of needles
We utilize oral sedation when assisting patients who experience fear or anxiety, which is taken as a pill before treatment begins. Oral sedation makes patients feel sleepy and very relaxed during their treatment. Many times, patients do not even remember their procedure at all. Oral sedation is preferred by many, especially those who are afraid of needles, because it requires no injections to induce the sedation effects.
Dr. G, as he is called by many of his patients, as well as his staff, takes a personalized approach to patient care. We treat each and every one of our clients like a member of our family, and we strive to make our office environment as relaxing and welcoming as possible. And now with the option of sedation, going to the dentist can actually be a pleasure, not a source of panic. It is important not to put off or delay dental treatments out of fear as most problems do not get better on their own. When you have the ability to receive treatment without anxiety thanks to sedation dentistry, you are able to live a happier and healthier life overall.
